1. Accreditation summary

Indicate your accreditation status *
Indicate your institutional status
See instructions here
Institutions that only have institutional accreditation, leave this section blank.
Please self-evaluate your compliance to ECTE standard B.2.1 – ‘Qualifications resulting from a programme should be clearly specified and communicated and refer to the correct level of the national qualifications framework for higher education and, consequently, to the Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area.'
If you are an alternative provider of higher education, please confirm that your use of qualification nomenclature is not in breach of local legislation about protected academic nomenclature.

2. Invoicing information

If you have accredited programmes that are not running or that have had no intake, please also include them. Institutions that only have institutional accreditation, write 0. Please report only ECTE accredited programmes.
For this figure, count all actual students, without distinguishing whether they are full time, part time, etc. This data is used for statistical purposes.
If you have a substantial number of part-time students you may calculate the full-time-equivalent (FTE) for them by adding all ECTS-credits earned by part-time students and dividing this total amount by 60 (=1 year of full-time studies), then submitting the figure of FTE along with your head count. This data is used for invoicing purposes. Please report only students in ECTE accredited programmes.

3. Reporting

Please complete the three reporting sections below. Schools with more than one accredited programme/cycle of study must ensure that the information regarding the different programmes is distinguished in the reporting. Schools that have received an accreditation or review visit during the academic year prior to the July deadline are exempt from this section.
Please provide a narrative report addressing major changes since the previous report or on-site visit.
List recommendations from your last Review Report and describe your respective actions/initiatives during this last academic year.
Should you be planning or discussing major changes in your accredited programmes or the addition of new programmes or delivery modes, please write a narrative describing these plans. All significant institutional changes are to be reported to the ECTE within one month and major programme reforms are to be discussed with the Accreditation Director before implementation. Please also use this space to inform the ECTE of any programmes that are being discontinued.
